Alan Freeman - Wants List!

bookmark this page: http://home.btconnect.com/ultimathule/wants.htm

IMPORTANT

One of my aims in life is to try and hear everything that is supposed to be good! That is in the world of prog/experimental/weird music. I wonder if I'm getting there? This list regularly shrinks and grows, and is constantly changing. As always, I welcome suggestions. i.e. anything new that I should know? Before suggesting older stuff, check my collection & other lists on this site, as I may already know it! But, you never know, I'm still amazed by some things I missed!

Excepting any listed as "Original CD's wanted of these..." I'm not after actual releases unless cheap! There are very few things that I actually want/need for myself. Generally I'm researching, clutching at straws, looking for odd missing items needed for projects. As much of this stuff is liable to be of little or no interest to us, some is sure to be rubbish, a recording/copy is usually adequate. I'm usually just interested in hearing the items below, as a download or CDR copy, and/or we can barter/swap. I like to remaster LP transcriptions to achieve CD quality in my archive, so please do not offer me scratchy vinyl rips, nor ones that are low bandwidth or not transferred directly, and especially not ones with jumps or bits of tracks missing. EX+ vinyl or better please!

Are you looking for something? Searching in vain? Why not email me: utle2uk@btconnect.com with your wants list? I have a huge archive. We may be able to come to a swap arrangement! I can swap physical CDRs, or online via flac or mp3. Or you can buy.

[r#######] = Discogs reference (paste into Discogs search bar)

items crossed out have been located (and only remain here for my future reference)

 

Things I'm wanting to hear...
actual product if cheap/reasonable, or a listening copy preferably from a source ex+ or better please!

Research wants...

German/Krautrock releases we still need to hear...

Attention - Greenville, Carolina / Green Kitchen, 7" Polydor 2041 179 - 1971 probably pop - on Discogs

Changes - IMAGES TO REMEMBER, LP - KS 9005 - Swiss 1990 - [r5688165] - Don't know if I'm interested, this turns out to be the same band as issued THE GROWING NUMBER in 1994 which wasn't so great.

CONTACT, LP Blackfield Tonstudio Bts 721 (1972) Pseudo Krups / Osmose / Laubentanz / Faktotum - this is pre Contact Trio, but with a clarinet player instead of guitarist. Likely to be too jazz for me. An mp3 track sample will do.

Eulenspygel - TRASH (Spiegelei 23-707-3 U) - please has anyone out there got the 8-Track and able to copy it?

Ex Ovo - IN DER RHEIN-MOSEL-HALLE, CD private - a bootleg?

Peter Michael Hamel - Other Voices, Other Rooms, 7" Calig CAL 17 009 (1974)

Hans Kopf Terzett - SO ... UND NICHT ANDERS!, cassette (Aleph² MC 002) 1982 - Shoulder Of Mutton A - related

Leaf - ONE MORE...LEAF (Biton Bit 2124) 1981 - fusion, ex Abraham - rather mediocre

Mariposa - GEDANKENSPRUNGE, LP WK 30.389, 1984 - looks like a naff folk album - actually quite pleasant

Mountain Ash - Smokers Sorrow / Devils In The Sky/ Mountain Ash III, 7" EP TCH 76 007 (1976)

Necronomicon - HAIFISCHE - reformation, have doubts that it will be any good!

Nexus - ABSOLUTELY LIVE 76 - 81 Vol 1, CD - listed on RYM and krautrock-musikzirkus

Nexus - ABSOLUTELY LIVE 76 - 81 Vol 2, CD - archives by Tuebingen band as on PROTON 1 2LP

Salt - BE MY FISHERMAN, LP S 15748 - doubtful, God rock! [r4449978]

Saytenspiel - KONZERTANZ, MC 1992 - or is it called: TANZHEFT ? German band - also definitely folk

Schmandelekker ‎– TOURDION, LP Ornament ‎– CH 7.336 - found at [r6070988] - turns out to be mellow folk in German based on " Mosella in Trauer" on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2BohS60qFY - found a different one!

Rolf Schulz' Largo - BAUMSARG (private release) 1988 - if it's anywhere near as good as his previous two!

Sonatinenblues - instrumental folk? representative?: www.youtube.com/watch?v=M28L01UrWLs

Steinzeit  - GEBURTSTAG, LP (Absurde Geburten 8511101) 1982 - [r5358908] according to seller, on Popsike...

Recorded at the Ougenweide-Studio in Hamburg. Musically totally avantgarde, somewhere between early FAUST, CAN in their "Tago Mago" phase, Lothar & The Hand People and some hints of 80s Berlin bands like Malaria or Einstürzende Neubauten.

Tracks: Steinzeit / Japan / Schützenkönige / Wie Du Dir so ich mir / Karibische Messer / Falkland / Liebe ist kälter als Eis / Der Araber / Die fromme Helene - Morgenstund hat Volt im Mund

Toxyne - NUR NICH NERVOES WERDEN, cassette (Aleph² MC 001) 1981 - Shoulder Of Mutton A - related

Treasure Island - CHANGE THE PRISONER, LP Interphon 214 801 382 - Austrian acid folk? Seems unlikely [r4613122]

Yggdrasil - Out Along The Highway / Tango Blackout, 7" private SYD 030 AB ????

 

We'd love to eradicate the "Rumours & Mysteries" sections...
and at least need to know if any of these are of interest
a sample typical track as mp3 will do
blue = got picture

CPG = Cosmic Price Guide (book)

 

Agnetha - LISTEN TO THE FUTURE, LP Agnetha Records (1980) - reputedly sort of hard rock - pretty average

Carry On  - CARRY ON, LP private 16098201 (1983) - Supposedly a "prog rock masterpiece"

Change - CHANGE, LP private RB1 (1976) - Apparently some sort of jazz fusion

Constellation - Tears / Attitudes, 7" private 7 F 65227 (1974) - from CPG - some sort of jazz [r5435086]

Crazy Diamond - I Want To Love You / You Can Make It, 7" Stiers 30402 (1977) - from CPG - no info except RYM mention

Desire - Was Du Gern Möchtest / Darüber Reden, 7" EMI 1C 006-46 246 (1980)

Desire - FRUSTIGE ZEITEN, LP Desire Musikproduktion DL 8101 (1981)

Dreirad - SELBSTGEMACHT, LP Musikiste 17-6-310 (1985) - some sort of folk outfit

Drum - War Child / Sunlight, 7" ? (1970) - heard "War Child" on KRAUT-BLOODY-RAGEOUS!

ES - IN CONCERT "LIVE AT ALADDIN" (Fran L-00210, 1977) Not "Wham Bang"

Fire Group - FIRE GROUP, LP Sound SPA 1576 (1976) ???

Flyght 6.6 - NWT, LP Tel-Star X 2-45001 (1979) - pop rock?
Graufabrik - Plattenfließband / Chamäleon, 7" Kanal ELZ 304 (1974) - from www.angelfire.com/planet/krautrock/dg1.htm - inc. Singer-Songwriter Werner Aurin (Mitglied der VocalGruppe Headline)

Grendel - THE FIRST CURTAIN, see: http://rateyourmusic.com/artist/grendel__deu_
Ho Turn Air - TAUBE VÖLKER TAPES, MC Transmitter TC 44 (1981)

Husky - WOBI MADAONDO - WEG WEIßE TEUFEL, LP TBS B 1075 1151 (1984) some sort of jazz-fusion? - nice piano and drums focused fusion based on the samples at growingbin - reminds me of Ginger Baker's Unseen Rain

Helmut Kagerer - GAMBLIN', CD Jardis JRCD 9714 (1997) - jazz guitarist

Eric Klaus - Going On / I Feel So Fine, 7" Wildsau Scheiben 9001 (?)

Der Klimek - MIT SCHMERZ IM HERZ, LP Brutkasten 85 C036 (1983) - said to be Weirdo-Schlager post-NDW-pop

Gerd Kraus - RHYTMUS & ENTSPANNUNG, MC Transmitter TC 63 (1981) - Member of Limbus.

Mara - HUMANE ZEITEN, LP SMB F 668.645 (1984) some sort of pop/rock, rare folk jazz fusion on ebay [r2566158]

Medusa - Sympathy / Salamanda, 7" Lava TCH 76004 (1976) - A different Medusa again, from Hannover.

Aleida Montijn - INSPIRATION, LP Art Production 60-5617 (1986) easy listening jazz?, just a track sample needed [r6368131]

Munich Big Band - MUNICH BIG BAND, LP Intersong 004 (19??) - Only documented on a library LP, these amounted to an international supergroup. Probably crappy TV theme jazz, or maybe could be good?

Mut - ÄMOL IS KÄMOL, Krypton Music KR 84004 - Rock? "Folkrock Schallplatte einer Band aus der Pfalz" [r8322074]

Nose - Layla / Sunny Morning, 7" Harvest 1C 006-29 960 (1972) - Ubopopland say these are German Kraut prog.  "Layla" is the Derek & the Dominoes song (arranged by Rainer Pietsch) in Epitaph vein. They are rumoured to be Janus related, so maybe they are British not German?

Onyx - MENSCHEN, LP private (1981) - Some sort of folk outfit, compared to Schariwari and Reifrock. Also: NIKE, LP Happy Sound HS 08543 (1985), Der Erste Bayerische Astronaut / Breakdance-Zenzi, 7" vlw 88.33 (1985)

Pentagon - Get Alive / War, 7" Elrec pn 1011 (1972) - different Pentagon, from Gelsenkirchen, with Heinz Kunert (of Epidaurus)

Pinocchio - JAZZ EROTIC, MC Transmitter TC 28 - ex-Xhol, cassette only release - more likely free-jazz

Razzia - IN STUDIO, LP Pro Sound (1982) - Band from Hannover. Either prog, new wave or indie rock?

Repent Walpurgis - THE OUTSIDER, LP private (1974) only on Krautrock Discography at Angelfire - Name is a Procol Harum song!

Roccata - A ROCKIN' GAME, LP private (1985) - nothing on the web

Rollsplytt - FLAPPERGRANNY, LP private 0784121410 (1982) Unknown instrumental fusion sextet according to CD reissue wish list site - says pop rock at [r6356732]

Scara Brae - SCARA BRAE (private, 1985) - Genesis members guest apparently (but don't think so) - side 1 is a 19m experimental track? YouTube track: www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7moIV-JFxk "Steelyard Blues" runs through many styles, ending with a good freak-out. Either 200 copies, or 60 it says here!

Snowblind - FIRST TIME OUT, LP Brutkasten 85 R031 (1982) tracks: Poor Boy / Starvin' / Haze / Limbo / Rock Against Disco / Nasta-rovje Kossygyn / Groove (Freedom Song) - possibly straight pop/rock/NDW? - [r8566488]

Store Evil - LIVE AUS DEM LEINE-DOMICIL, LP Lava TCH 77350 (1977) - jazz-rock of some sort (on Discogs). Sounds good based on the one track (streaming sample) on Fagostore site, a bit Ibliss, Aera, Kraan like. Review there says some of it is funky. Need to hear the whole album!

Störopor - FÜR KOPF UND OHR, LP Coloured Rain CR 002/74 (199?) - probably never released?

Tenderness - TENDERNESS, LP Stahl or Intercord (?) - probably fiction?
Touch - Bonanza (Rock'n'Roll Gambler) / It's Done, 7" Klangstadt SA 1001 (1978) - Not to be confused with other bands

The Trademark - Find Your Way / Watch The Garden, 7" Elrec pn 1010 (1972) http://rateyourmusic.com/artist/the_trademark__deu_

Nick Uhlsteyn - AUTUMN SONGS, LP Racket Records RRK 15.003 (1981) - Prog or dance-electronic.

United Four - MIXTOUR, LP private 66.22922 (1985) some sort of rock, seller's notes: Unknown and obscure but nevertheless quite good german rock band. Amazing organ / synthie / keyboard work here.

Uranus - My Friends / People Talking Around, 7" BASF 05 11252-1 (1971) - Early band featuring top German 1980s pop star Drafi Deutscher, and co-composition of the A-side by Les Humphries. Unlikely to be of interest, and listed as: Rock, Pop, Pop Rock, Europop by one seller.

Venus - VENUS, LP private AK 1 (1975) - Supposedly progressive underground. No idea quite what the whole album will be like based on the extract heard - starts with phase modulation, acoustic guitar with female voice in German, goes a bit boogie jamming - curious, could be good.

Manni von Bohr - MANNIFEST, CD Blue Flame 398 50242 (1998) - solo by the well-travelled rock drummer

Zeberon - ZEBERON, LP Mullbinde (1971) - probably fiction?

French 1970/80s acts of possible interest and/or need to hear...

rip needed, please has anyone out there got?...
Iris - single A-side "Aux Portes Des Villes" - or at least that's what I think I want!
of which the 1st 40 secs can be heard at 1:16 + on this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_o4FXpL9vaw
important: the B-side "Opus 340" (which I have already) is listed wrongly as "Aux Portes Des Villes" in many places, i.e. http://junglevibe2.net/tracks/iris_aux_portes_des_villes.html = Opus 340!
Confused?
Ideally I require a flac/wav rip of both sides from someone that has it!
So, the Jungle Vibe thanks to Bosko was premature, but at least I now know how to record a stream!

Abramose ‎- ABRAMOSE, LP private 808 (1975) most curious looking, could be good? single is nice!
Agartha -  Fini Pour Toi / Jacky Et Freddy, 7" private (1982) reputedly prog - 30secs at http://www.45toursderockfrancais.net/rockfrancais/sons/agarthafini.mp3 - sounds like a funky Steve Hackett with a bad drummer and punky female vocals, so not very promising!
Aiguade - CHANSONS DES TEMPS FIGÉS, LP Baccara International BI 001 732 (1976) prog-folk?
Amalgame - LES BILLARDS VERTS, LP private AMA 30 CM 1 (1979) Apparently more Memoriance or Ange vein
Ananke - Veprabilly/C'ui Qui L'dit Qui Y'est - almost unanimously listed as jazz-rock! Musea: Quatuor de Dijon, ANANKE produit un jazz-rock technique, virtuose et teinté d'humour. Le 45 tours "Veprabilly/C'ui Qui L'Dit Qui Y Est" (1982) peut évoquer les oeuvres de Frank ZAPPA ou ZAO, tout en empruntant à Albert MARCOEUR et ETRON FOU LELOUBLAN leur fantaisie et leur goût du pastiche. It also gets listed in the French punk discography!
Roger Bellon - ROGER BELLON (RCA Victor ) 1977 - Balance series jazz-rock with Magma connections
rather unexciting based on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lA39CullClo - other track recently added on YT is much more interesting akin to Clivage gone jazzy
Pascal Chassin - La Nouvelle Européenne / Don Juan 80, 7" Ballon Noir ‎BAL 45004 - curious sounding 1979 single (based on 30 sec sample on http://www.45toursderockfrancais.net/rockfrancais/chassin45t.htm) by band that's almost Komintern!
Claude Demet - HORDE, LP Crypto ZAL 6404 (1982) ???? doubt it'll be of interest.

Véhicule Léger - Lame De Rasoir / Nez Rouge, 7" FLVM 4540 (1980) sounds like some sort of bizarre Zeuhl based on 30sec sample of Nez Rouge at http://www.45toursderockfrancais.net/rockfrancais/vehiculeleger45t.htm

Belle De Jour - Sustain Love/Etoiles de la Nuit - is on the French new wave discography where it says "progresif"
Bestiole - MLP Dans les marais/Le voyageur/Rue du chevau fug - turns out to be a 7" EP, first track sounding like Simon & Garfunkel in French, 2nd track sounds like some bubblegum pop band (i.e. Sweet or Mud - French style), whereas the B side is quite a nice prog number.
Croque Mitaine - LA CHANSON DU FOU - apparently akin to Malicorne, so should be worth investigating! Found a picture, seems we've had it in the past & didn't keep
Distance - MOSHI, MOSHI (Mercury 6313.143) 1981 - some sort of fusion? "Melodic AOR" according to some sources! "jazz funk" according to an Ebay seller! [r2349214]
Dynamo - jazz-rock tinged with humour 1979
Claude Guillain -  Anita/Je Me Fais Tout Petit - pop, it seems? Only listed in La Discographie Du Rock Français
Imbroglio - SAUF LA PANTOUFLE - free-jazz, ex Confluence - so, not so likely to be of interest to us, and just need to hear a track - info:  r179589]
Jazz Virus Quartet - seems to be a Didier Lockwood project?
Korman - ?????????
Neophyt - Tout Seul Tous Les Deux/Le Noir - un rock mélodique dans la lignée de ICARE, bénéficiant d'une emphase vocale ...
Ogoun Feraille - Ogoun’s Comin / Samba À La Jef (PES 451 133) - wonky jazz based on snippet at ddonline
Rackham-Le-Rouge (R 8201) Alain Gautier & others, seems to be pop

Trouble - unknown single from 1977
Yecta Plus Band (pre Flamen Dialis) same info everywhere "After releasing a 45 in England in 1971..." - anyone got it?

Italian research...

Need a recording...
Lydia Et Hellua Xenium - Diluvio / Conoscevo Un Uomo, 7"  Radio RRS 1063 (1974) got: Diluvio side, also Guai A Voi / Invocazione - found 1:38 of Conoscevo Un Uomo at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_H0TzCS-4k
Mediterranea Mesolella Band - Jonium
/ Vai Facile, 7" Amiamoci  AM 2007 (1980) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=TFeWSRFnNSs - thanks BA. Terrible rip, crackly and off-centre, but pleasant sympho prog fusion with soundtracky feel

Need to hear at least snippet...
Officina Meccanica - The Land Of A Thousand Dances / Un Prato E Poi Sognare, 7"  Picci LG 3020 (1973) - - found B-side

New unknowns...
Gruppo Odissea - ODISSEA, LP AEDO LPK 3357 (197?) - looks like a pop LP, but has only 5 tracks
- found on Discogs tagged as Space-Rock = rather naff and almost m-o-r Eurovision based on the YouTube track found by Bosko

Are any of the following Italian bands/soloists worth hearing?...
Cuncti Gens Una - L'alba di Gretel / Autunno - said to be: halfway between pop and melodic progressive
Human Expression - BEING IN THE BECOMING, LP  private HE 7 (1985) - 80's prog, supposed to be a good one!
- Not prog at all, pretty drab new wave
Lorenzo Lazzarini - CIRILTÀ or CIVILTA ?? - LP  Red Records ZPL RE 34024 (1977) - jazz?
Punto 2 - ODORE DI CAPRA - LP  Ghibli CD 3304 (1977) - a little known melodic pop album? - turns out to be a funny one, partly bubblegum Eurovision pop with some very prog bits!
Tunnel - Speed Up/Tunnel Lights - 7"  Splash SPH 1034P (1980) on www.italianprog.com: same band as Luna, Funk / Soul, Rock / Disco?
Vieta - Lo Stalliere / Giorni Neri - 7"  Sombrero DM 210 on www.italianprog.com - rather naff funky stuff based on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qs0gO3BYQkA

Suggestions on any of the above welcome.
If of no interest, confirmation of style, and maybe a sample (email me a 1-2 minute 56k rate mp3, or the link to where I can find it).

p.s...
If you know of any brilliant albums that aren't in our collection, wants, or other pages on this site, then we'd like to know!
You see, there are bound to be other awesome revelations like The Beat Of The Earth (whom we'd never heard of until very recently),
who turn out to be pre-Friendsound (same organist), or Japanese esoterica like Kimio Mizutani or People, and we only just recently
discovered there was a third Atila album. There's bound to be many other things we're missing. (was written 2007)
Our basic tastes are Krautrock, experimental/cosmic/space-rock, the more unusual (less vocal) end of prog, jazz-rock (more solo driven,
rock & ethnic spiced, rather than fiddly/technical), non-genre electronic and cross-culture, 1970's Euro-rock/prog, some synth, ethnic, etc.
